    The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is a throwback. The ticket prices are very reasonable and it reminded me of Shea Stadium. This old stadium is definitely worth a visit.

    Great Ballpark Energy, fun place to go with friends! All the workers are super nice and helpful. You can bring Your OWN food into the park! And drinks! Frozen ice cream is great! Go support the A's!!!

    Anyone who doesn't like the Coli is just jealous of all the A's accomplishments throughout history. Even with Mt. Davis is one of the best parks in baseball! The atmosphere is always electric!

    Best craft beer options are at the Gastropub, in the West Side Club, on the second deck and right behind home plate. They also serve made-to-order brick oven pizzas that are surprisingly good.

    If you're a die-hard A's fan, the place to be is section 149 in the RF bleachers, home to some of the most entertaining fans in baseball (otherwise, look for cheap infield seats on StubHub).

    Best baseball team in the Bay Area, bar none. If you don't need the pretty views, gourmet food, and fufu crowds, this is the spot for you. A place for blue collar fans who are really into the game!

    The food is super expensive--like any other stadium, and the stairs are a killer not only from the entrance to the seat but from the bart to your seat. but it is a great stadium in the city of Oakland

    The fan experience is boring, but always a great idea for visiting team fans to come here. As for Bay Area baseball fans, SF Giants fans have more class than A's fans since A's fans love to hate

    Of course it's old, decrepit, in a bad part of town, and Mt. Davis is an abomination. But its still fun to watch a game. Home of 4 World Series titles and 2 Super Bowl champions.
